    Played this for my 50th birthday gift on Sept 14th 2011 and it was spectacular. I loved every minute of it and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Payed for a twlight rate and teed off at noon. Was given a free cart for the wives to follow us around and take pictures. Just a fun course to play with the most beautiful views around. And it was in excellent condition! I definitely want to play it again.

    This is the BEST on the island. The course was in great condition and the pro shop was cordial and reasonable. The views on almost every hole is awesome all the time but from Jan. to March look out to the bay and watch the whales jump and play!

    This has to be the most beautiful golf course on the island. A great challenge for amatures like me but worth every second out there no matter what your socre. The staff are top notch. I had a great time in July 2010. I will definately be back next trip.

    Must be played at least once in your lifetime! Lots of room off the tee, spectacular ocean views with each hole having its own unique features. Negotiate shots using on board golf cart GPS with premium on carrying your shot to at minimum front green yardage. Bomb your drive from the 18th tee box using clubhouse chimney as your target. Can't wait to go back and play again.

    Played this course around the time of the SBS Invitational in January 2010. Course was in fantastic condition. Just a fun, scenic, and unique place to play. The wide range of tees makes this course as challenging as you want it to be. I am a huge admirer of Coore and Crenshaw's work.

    One of the most fun courses to play in the world. While every hole may not be memorable, many of the holes are excellent. There are two outstanding streches of holes here - several on the front nine that wind along the top of deep gullies with heavy jungle growth and the two finishing holes, which are some of the most fun and dramatic in golf.

    I've had the opportunity to play here a few times and it's one of the best courses and views you will ever play.
